The Mechanic

A video inspired by the mechanic scene from Life Cycles.

 As one that loves wrenching as much as riding and digging, I'm just glad to see a video short (aka "edit") about it Smile Sure, there was a lot of dis/re assembly and almost no actual work shown, though with the exception of the fork and shock, I've done enough service to see the steps in my mind, and if a film is able to elicit that kind of imagination rather than just passive consumption of images, it's a win in my book Smile

 Glad to hear you liked it man. And I did was disassemble it and put it back together. Big Grin haha it had already been in pretty good shape for the most part.

 Amazing, is this to show how easy working on a bike is so that only the morons will continue taking their bikes to a shop for work???

You don't have to take every part off a bike to true the wheels!
